Last minute valentine....

If you're like probably took care of getting your kiddos all ready for Valentines day and put your own off till the last minute....guilty!!

I sat looking at this cute sentiment stamp by Stampendous trying to decide what to do with it when I doodled a heart shape...then cut it out...then cut out one that was a little larger from a different color paper...

I then stamped the sentiment into the center of my small heart shape... now what...??? I decided that what I really wanted was some polka dot paper to put it on...but didn't have any that would work, so I pulled out my small circle punch and got busy making my own polkadot cardstock paper for my card. Adding my polkadots to a piece of double sided Coredinations cardstock.
I then pulled out some scallop sissors to trim it down...added another piece of cardstock behind it and then mounted the whole thing to my card base.
Finally, I added an arrow that I cut from a scrap of the same brown Coredinations cardstock to the heart and mounted it to the front of my card using foam tape!

So now I'm final Valentine that I needed to make....I think he'll like it!
Happy crafting....Lynda


  1. Great job, Lynda! There's always something so sweet about a cut paper valentine. Seems so homey and original. I love a simple card and sometimes we get too caught up in making them complicated! Well done! And Happy Heart Day!
